Things I'm Loving...

By PaisleyJade - Friday, April 08, 2011

I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something that you can be thankful for... no matter how simple it is.  

Here are a few of the things I am loving at the moment...

Discovering my son has seriously amazing spoon hanging skills.  He can do 5... apparently the world record is 16. He asked me if we'd buy him a pack of 20 spoons for his birthday - I bet no other kid has ever asked his mother that.

Spending special time with my love on our anniversary (with a certain Little Miss in tow too).  Thank you all sooooo much for your lovely comments on our Anniversary post.  Especially loving the comment about our hands... hehehe.

Beautiful cards...

Loving the fact that the cooler weather means delicious soup more often, and using my Grandmother's special pumpkin soup serving set...

Link Love:  Inspiring bloggy friends like Jackie, who is about to enter her first TriWoman event, Widge - who is on a journey to find images/art about things she is grateful for, for the next 365 days, and Simoney who is getting real about what she needs to let go of... you girls are seriously awesome.  Also loving Symon's latest post about un-pc retro ads!

The excitement that a new family fun night on the horizon brings (including the fact that the special invites had to be deciphered in the mirror)...

Finally, getting to spend time with our precious family (Symon's brother, his wife and their son) from over the ditch.  We love these guys!!
